    becoming a musical Guggenheim a designer museum of contemporary music But Michael White s solution of winding the clock back and appointing an English leaning artistic director is clearly errant nonsense Instead the incredibly talented in house team at Snape should start winding the clock forward because the celebrity led music festival is fast approaching its sell by date The Aldeburgh Festval does not need to wrap new or old music up in a celebrity package to attract audiences Of course high profile artists should be part of the Festival but not its raison d être Quite miraculous things happen at Snape for fifty weeks a year without a jet set artistic director and the Aldeburgh Festival need only look to its East Anglian cousin the Britten Sinfonia to see what can be done without a celebrity figurehead Just to show I am impartial here is a link to my podcast pre concert talk with Pierre Laurent Aimard Interestingly I open by talking about Benjamin Britten and the Aldeburgh Festival before discussing the music of Elliott Carter with Aimard Header photo is c On An Overgrown Path 2011 Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Also on Facebook and Twitter Posted by Pliable at Friday July 08 2011 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels aldeburgh festival britten sinfonia exaudi john cage jonathan reekie louis andriessen pierre laurent aimard simon rattle snape No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16 2014 211 December 13 November 23 October 13 September 19 August 17 July 10 June 21 May 27 April 15 March 2 February 23 January 28 2013 257 December 21 November 17 October 31 September 8 August 35 July 24 June 24 May 8 April 31 March 8 February 24 January 26 2012 276 December 22 November 25 October 23 September 12 August 20 July 27 June 27 May 7 April 32 March 27 February 24 January 30 2011 299 December 22 November 21 October 42 September 12 August 24 July 38 Symphonic musicians against specialisation Bach the specialists would never allow that How many black conductors at the BBC Proms Orchestras unable to play a Mozart symphony Specialisation is damaging classical music From Carmen Jones to Arvo Part and beyond Is classical music too lean and mean I don t believe in Negro symphony conductors Boredom and the lost art of listening I simply do not want sensationalism Buddhist lama takes the rap Contemporary music uncovered In a nutshell Slowly and inexorably he parted from his fellows Drowned in a fusion sauce I want to comment and like on Facebook but Great Wagnerian who does
